Adelaide heatwave a first: A sign of climate change

Adelaide’s ongoing severe heatwave is a first for this time of year and the “sort of signal you will see with climate change”, a Bureau of Meteorology head says.  He said Adelaide had never experienced a sequence of four 40 degree Celsius days during December.  The city sweltered through another hot night last night, with the mercury dropping to only 25C by about 6:30am.
